Australian Business Traveller, of all people, has got exclusive images of the business class seat that Aer Lingus is using on its new A321LR fleet.

Aer Lingus has 14 of these aircraft on order.  Whilst they will look like standard short haul aircraft from the outside, they have capacity to fly transatlantic.  Aer Lingus has also announced plans to use them on selected short haul routes, both to keep the aircraft busy during the day and to allow premium passengers a good connection experience.

The seat is, not surprisingly, the same ‘Vantage’ product used on its A330 and Boeing 757 fleet.   Click to enlarge:

There will be 16 seats per aircraft with a staggered layout in order that the feet of the person behind can fit under the seat in front.  This is a layout which usually works well unless you don’t like your feet being in a cubbyhole.

  1. Do we know if these intra Europe flights are loaded in the system & bookable yet ? Many thanks

    • No, not been mentioned. Or, more precisely, the flights probably are bookable as standard Aer Lingus flights will be switched nearer the time.

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have a hotel booked in NYC with this offer, but I hadn’t even thought to check my supp Plat card. Now looking to extend my stay, or do a two centre.

  3. Yes thanks – I’ve just used this today on main card and supp. Had a successful email on the main card but not supp. So will sit tight.

  4. O / T

    Can you get referred / self refer from another card to the Nectar Card for an increased Bonus?
